west corner of McLain Cemetery in the 1970's for the construction of the Arkansas River Navigation System. There are
many unknown graves in this cemetery. A member of the Hildebrand family, Mary Hildebrand, wife of Stephen Hildebrand is buried here. Henry Landers, and Uncle of Gary
Lester dug the grave of Dr. James Coon who died in 1918. Henry's father, Hiram Landers and mother, Callie Scales Landers
